Each VNC connection gets its own login/desktop - separate from the actual 
desktop.  VNC only works this way on Linux.  On Windows, VNC will 
"takeover" the desktops.  I haven't tried the Xorg capabilities in this 
area - slow to change old habits. It's your responsibility to ensure that 
the applications you run are actually designed for concurrent access.

Others have covered other points rather well...
